Brian McKnight and his wife Leilani welcomed their second child, son Brian Kainoa Makoa McKnight, in a joint Instagram post Monday.

“‘For this child, we have prayed and the Lord has granted us the desires of our hearts’ 1 Samuel 1:27 God’s greatest gift, our son is here!!!” The duo wrote along with a photo of McKnight and Leilani creating a heart with their hands around the infant’s hand.

“Brian Kainoa Makoa McKnight We are so in love!!!! #iloveourlife #mylegacy #blessed #ohana #son #mrandmrsmcknight #knightandlei,” they added.

The couple has two children, Jack and Julia. McKnight has two kids, Brian Jr. and Niko, with his ex-wife Julie McKnight, whom he married from 1990 until 2003, and a daughter, Briana McKnight, from another relationship.

The couple announced in November that they were expecting a boy.

“So thankful for the precious life and our growing OHANA!!!” wrote the singer at the time.

McKnight went out about their pregnancy loss in a series of Instagram postings on Mother’s Day, revealing how they’d lost a rainbow baby.

He posted on Instagram, “I treasure this picture, it was our last family picture before the arrival of our son Kekoa Matteo.”

He referred to Leilani as the  “greatest example of being a mother I’ve ever witnessed,” noting that Kekoa’s due date was Mother’s Day.

“I know how hard him not being here in the flesh with us is weighing incredibly heavy on us, but I know he is with us just like Julia and Jack are, as shining examples of your exceptional motherhood,” McKnight continued, applauding the “strength I saw in you through the loss of our son and the courage to deal with the hardest loss we’ve ever dealt with in our lives has been truly remarkable.”
